Comment on Opting Out of Autism: The Way is Shut by Jsackmom.

I’m so glad you wrote this I’m one of those Moms with that child that gets whispered about in public. His autism is newly discovered but always known about by me. He’s high functioning in certain situations but when sensory overwhelmed it’s a game changer. He feeds off of his environment and if it’s hostile he reacts in turn. Like you I’ve heard of all the things I should be doing to discipline him in his world of rigidity. I’m grateful that him and his therapy team see what I’m doing right. He is my child I’m his advocate and safe place not an enabler. He is my joy and happiness not something or someone I have to fix. ❤️

This is so heartbreaking and beautifully written. I too know the love of my Gram who at 4″10 could move mountains with her courage, strength, and devotion to her loved ones. I hold you and your family in faith and prayer. ❤️
